  1. I am about to start this same build and your log is the best work I've ever seen. Thankyou, beautiful work.

    I was able to match the paint colors by using a small chip from one of her yards being restored on the dock.

    Since I live in San Diego and she is berthed here I wanted a model of her for my own. There is no kit to build her so I decided to try my first scratch build using her as the templet.

    Deck details. I spent two years on board taking 100's of pictures and measurements to complete this build.

    To simulate the iron hull I mixed fine silica sand and white glue. I applied it to the hull and painted when dry.

    Best and most detailed Cutty Sark kit..?

    I'm 500 hours into the Artisan Latina Cutty Sark and I found the materials and instructions to be pretty good. It includes sails and that is something I always include in any of my builds. The instruction booklet has very good picture instructions for every step. This is a big plus if you are new to the craft. I'm including some pictures of the build. If you choose this kit you will not be disappointed with the results.
